Paper Abstract

We demonstrate electro-optic modulation in hybrid organic-crystal/silicon photonic waveguides. The organic material is the newly developed organic crystal OH1 with very high electro-optic figures of merit, n3r = 530 pm/V at 1319 nm, and the processing possibilities considerably improved compared to previous high-nonlinearity organic crystals. We have developed an epitaxial-like solution growth of OH1 on various substrates and fabricated electro-optic modulators with electro-optic functionality either directly in OH1 wire waveguides or in OH1 active cladding of silicon wire waveguides. OH1-based waveguides offer a great potential for high-bandwidth, sub-1-V half-wave voltage, hybrid organic/silicon electro-optic modulators with high electro-optic activity and stability.
